Callum Hudson-Odoi on being mentored by Raheem Sterling

Chelsea rising star Callum Hudson-Odoi has revealed that Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling has been watching him closely in hopes of helping him improve his game according to Football Ghana. 

Hudson-Odoi has been out of action for approximately five months after he suffered an Achilles injury but he made his comeback known when he scored in Chelsea's massive 7-1 victory over Grimsby Town - he even involved himself in three assists. 

The 18-year-old admitted that manager Frank Lampard told him to approach Sterling for help despite playing for another English rival - and the two have reportedly been in constant contact. 

"[Sterling] obviously plays for a different team, so he doesn’t have to do that, but he does because he wants everyone to do well," Hudson-Odoi said.

"For a person like that to help you, it’s an amazing feeling. He gives you the best advice possible.

"I ask him, 'How do you get all the goals you are getting, how do you work for the team, how do you make an impact in big games?'

"[He] tells me to keep working hard, tells me how to get the goals, how to get the assists.

"He’ll tell me what are the best movements to get in the box when the balls are coming in, what is the best position to pick up possession.

"It’s everything you need to know in the modern game and how you should be playing.

"I’d say he is one of the best wingers in the world right now. When I watch him play it’s an amazing feeling because he likes to help and contribute to the team as much as possible."
